BC Law Inforcement

Monday, Dec. 27:
A Bandera Boyo was apparently unable to hold his likker in public.
Wednesday, Dec. 29:
A Cowboy Capital Matron was hauled off to the hoosegow for felony hindering the apprehension and prosecution of a fugitive.
Thursday, Dec. 30:

Friday, Dec. 31
Instead of celebrating the Dawn of a New Decade, a local yokel spent New Year's Eve as a guest in the Gray Bar Inn because he twice failed to heed the warnings of previous courts.
Saturday, Jan. 1:
A no doubt gently raised 17-year-old young lady from Lakehills - kinda sounds like the beginning of a limerick, don't it? - got a great start to the New Year by being charged with misdemeanor assault by contact.
A Hellion from Houston and a Cretin from Comfort were picked up for being pie-eyed in public; a Bandera Blockhead received a felony charge for driving while intoxicated with a child in his vehicle; and a Bore from Boerne found himself briefly behind bars for being not only pissed in public but also for going one toke over the line to boot.
Happy New Year!!!
In addition to the above arrests, during the week of Monday, Dec. 27, through Sunday, Jan. 2, local law enforcement authorities also responded to a trio of major vehicular accidents; a half dozen domestic disputes, disturbances and loud parties; one terroristic threat and three harassments; six each burglaries and thefts; 20 calls involving our four-legged friends; three reports of shots ringing out; a duet of structure fires; 10 suspicious circumstances, vehicles and persons; and eight reports of reckless driving, among others.
In this, the first week of a new decade - one in which, it should be noted, the Mayan Calendar ends - a total of 72 jailbirds call the Bandera County Calaboose "home sweet home" - 14 from Gillespie County, an equal number from Medina County and six from Real County. The rest of the scofflaws were homegrown - or at least detained here in the Free State of Bantucky.
